17. The director general may not have a direct or indirect interest in a body, enterprise or association that places his or her personal interests in conflict with those of the museum. If such an interest devolves to the director general, including by succession or gift, it must be renounced or disposed of with dispatch.
Any other board member who has a direct or indirect interest in a body, enterprise or association that places the member’s personal interests in conflict with those of the museum shall disclose it in writing to the chair of the board or, in the case of a disclosure by the chair of the board, to the director general, and abstain from participating in any discussion or decision involving that body, enterprise or association. The member shall also withdraw from a meeting while the matter is discussed or voted on.
This section does not prevent a board member from expressing an opinion on general measures relating to conditions of employment within the museum that would also apply to the board member.
